The Mummy and Bravo from Firestone Walker Brewing

Cheers! In honor of Universal’s new movie “The Mummy,” which is supposedly kicking off a new Dark Universe of Universal monster movie reboots, we are watching 1932’s “The Mummy,” starring Boris Karloff, and 1959’s “The Mummy,” starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.

We’ve paired our “Mummy” double feature with an aged beer – do you see what we did there? It’s Bravo, an imperial brown ale aged in oak bourbon barrels, from Firestone Walker.

Alec Guinness Classics and HenHouse Brewing

Cheers! We’re back. Did you miss us? To make up for our hiatus, we’re going to talk about three movies – that’s right, THREE – movies starring Alec Guinness.

In honor of these three movies from Ealing Studios we’re drinking East Coast Bias from HenHouse Brewing from Petaluma, California. We actually don’t have a clever tie-in this time. We just really like this beer, and we want to talk about it.

Christmas in Connecticut, White Christmas and Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel by De Halve Maan

Tis the season for holiday movies, right? While everyone is dusting off their copies of “A Christmas Story” and that awful Jim Carrey “Grinch” movie, we’ve decided to watch some old holiday movies we’ve never seen before.

In this podcast, we are talking about 1945’s “Christmas in Connecticut” and 1954’s “White Christmas,” while drinking Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel by De Halve Maan in Belgium.

Our Christmas Village is growing. Check out our newest building, an old movie theater. The perfect pairing for our brewery. And yes, we know we are complete dorks.
